Pacific Sands in Tofino

I’m sharing a little photo diary of my experience staying at the Pacific Sands resort in Tofino, BC a few weeks ago. These photos taken on the beach are of Cox Bay, which you can view right from your window, amazing hey? The waves get really big here so its a great spot for avid surfers alike and if you’re not the surfer type, you can take a relaxing stroll along the tide too, also not going to lie, the backdrop makes for perfect photos so if you want to take your family, friends for an impromptu shoot I highly recommend it.

Take your breakfast out on the porch and eat with the sounds of the ocean, pretty amazing experience.

Thanks, Krissy for the wicked lesson! Ps. Isn’t their ‘surf shack’ awesome?

    BC is so lovely! There is something special about going to the beach in BC in the middle of winter. It is always too cold for me to get into the water, I cannot imagine surf lessons – brrrr.

    I’ve tried surfing a few times and failed miserably. but this certainly seems like an ideal place to try again! Beautiful photos!

    It is amazing the different levels of comfort one can have in travel. You adventure would be great but our budget does not always allow for a place this nice then, most of the place we visit do not have them anyway. We will be returning to the U.S. next year and plan a trip up the west coast of Canada to Alaska. This would be a great stop over point.

    Ahh, I am an avid surfer – I’d love this. The Surf Sister shack looks super cute. I can’t wait to go someday, the pictures look awesome. Did you find surfing challenging?

    Good to hear that there’s a great surf there! Will definitely make sure to hit up Surf Sister if I ever get the chance to visit.

    The Pacific Sands resort seems very relaxing! You looked very relaxed. Being any beach resort is relaxing. We just spent some time in the French Riviera with our children and it was even relaxing just sitting there watching our kids play in the sand and in the water.

    Beautiful shots and I especially love the ones in bed! Those chairs are so colorful and inviting, I have painted a chair at home a similar color too and love it. Looks like you had a great time.

    Pacific Sands looks like an oasis for the stressed mind! Your pics are beautiful and rightfully so. The view from the window is the one that leaves me wondering when will I get to visit this amazing property!

    Lovely shots! I love that it looks very much like you’re in a cabin in the woods but you are actually overlooking the seaside – so cool!
